REPORTS AND COMMUNICATIONS FROM 
CITY OFFICERS. 



MAYOR. 



Inaugural Message of Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, thereupon ad- 
dressed the City Council as follows: 

"No man could he insensible to the honor conferred 
upon me by my fellow-citizens and I am deeply grate- 
ful for it. 

It is not my intention tonight to speak about my- 
self. The important thing tonight is Chicago — and 
Chicago's future. 

We Chicagoans have a golden opportunity in our 
individual capacities and as representatives of the 
three and a half millions who live in our city, to 
leave an imprint upon Chicago's future, and will 
make the best of our opportunity. 

We are all concerned with the welfare of our city. 
We all are determined that Chicago shall go forward, 
that we shall make Chicago the greatest city in the 
world. 

We shall work for the good things for Chicago and 
fight — with all our might — any forces of evil which 
would keep Chicago back. It is in that spirit that I 
address you tonight. So if I mention the recent elec- 
tion, it is not in any personal sense or from the desire 
to boast. 

The fact that nearly 800,000 Chicagoans out of not 
much more than 1,000,000 were agreed on one man 
for Mayor, shows that Chicago is a city of coopera- 
tion. It means that we Chicagoans have been work- 
ing and thinking together. It means that there is 
harmony in our city and that the citizens are deter- 
mined to go forward in the only way any community 



can go forward — through constructive cooperation. 
That was the great meaning of the recent election. 

The spirit of cooperation will carry us success- 
fully over the hurdles that we are to face during the 
next four years 

If anyone is in doubt as to how we intend to ap- 
proach the new problems of our city, the best guide 
will be found in the record of the last two years. The 
only forecast of what a public official will accom- 
plish is usually found in his past record. 

What we have accomplished is well known to all of 
you. How Chicago's credit was restored need not be 
repeated, — nor how we have restored the morale of 
our public employees, how we have made our police 
department a real, fighting force against crime — nor 
how we have decreased government expenditures and 
thus reduced taxes upon the owners of homes and 
other property. 

Neither is it necessary to tell you how we have 
assured a safe milk supply for our children, improved 
all the municipal services, including the schools, ex- 
tended transportation facilities — of particular benefit 
to the working men and women — and most important 
of all, caused the whole world to look once more with 
respect upon Chicago and Chicagoans. 

We have done all those things — and when I say 
"We", I mean "We" — because of the great spirit of 
cooperation of this Council and of our people. The 
election returns reveal in the most convincing way 
possible that Chicago has approved what has been 
done. 

And, now, what of the future? 

The most important problem facing us is to pro- 
vide jobs and wages for our men and women who 
want to work, but who have been denied the oppor- 
tunity of honest labor. 

We will find jobs for these honest citizens — jobs 
which will enable them to support themselves and 
their families and enable them to maintain their self- 
respect. 

I have labored with my own hands and I know the 
joy that comes to a man from putting in an honest 
day's toil, knowing that as a result he is able to sup- 
port himself and family. 

Chicago always has been a city of workers, and we 
will keep it that way. Work and wages — not unem- 
ployment — that is our goal for every Chicagoan able 
to work. 

We hope to give every earnest and willing man and 
woman in Chicago the opportunity to earn a decent 
living. Nothing is of greater importance. 

We will restore courage, hope and ambition in the 
hearts of Chicagoans. We will never permit a gener- 
ation to grow up discouraged, pessimistic and with- 
out hope. We older citizens have a responsibility to 
the boys and girls of Chicago. We must see that they 
have faith in Chicago, in our country and in our 
American institutions. 

The surest way of getting that faith is by opening 
the doors of opportunity to these youngsters. It is 
our duty to prove to them that industry and honesty 
will be rewarded. That can be done by a program 
that means jobs and wages. 

To aid in getting more work and more wages, the 
City has planned projects involving the expenditure

of iiior(> Mian Seven Iluiidred Million dollars. Tliese

ex.uninalion, considd'alion and approval ol' sucJi as 
Uiey deem inosf, advanlaKcous. 

I hope and conlideiilly oxpecl, Ilia! a lar^e pari of 
this j)r()(j;rani will \n\ approv(Hl by WasliinKlon. II, 
I)r()vides for i)uhlic iini)i'ovenien(,s, eon.sl.r'uc-lions and 
betlerinenls, wliicli are useful, benelU^ial and n(!ccs- 
sary. This program do(!s not invade tbo realm of 
])rivat(> nlfaii's. 

It is a [)lan to improve living eonditions ia Chicago 
— a plan (hat will substantially conti'ibutc to the 
health, safety and convenience of the people. 

It contemplates the building of sewers, the increase 
of water pressure, filtration plants, a maternity hos- 
pilal for i)oor mothers, enlargement of the Municipal 
Tuberculosis Sanitarium, resurfacing of Four Hun- 
dred miles of macadam streets, rehabilitation of the 
Fire and l^olice Alarm systems, elimination of dan- 
gerous grade crossings, construction of adequate air- 
port facilities, building of new bridges, enlargement 
of playgrounds and beaches, building of highways, 
construction of garbage incinerators, improvement of 
the street lighting. 

These improvements contemplate an approach to 
Chicago's ultimate goal of being the cleanest, best 
paved, most brightly lighted, healthiest, safest and 
happiest city in the world. 

To be sure, such a program involves the expendi- 
ture of an enormous amount of money, but none of it 
is for fads, artificial beauty, or other unnecessary 
extravagances. There will be no improvements which 
will increase the taxes on real estate or personal 
property, or impose any special assessments. 

This program will provide tens of thousands of 
persons with employment, add to family incomes, 
provide for the necessities of life and stimulate busi- 
ness generally. 

It is frankly acknowledged that this is an ambitious 
plan. Some may criticize it as being too extensive, 
but the outlook spells success. 

When I assumed office, one of my well-wishers 
remarked that I had been handed the toughest job 
of any mayor in the country. Others made like com- 
ments; no one presented a rosy picture. But with 
the aid of this capable City Council and well-meaning 
citizens sincerely interested in the city's growth and 
welfare, substantial and encouraging results were 
obtained. 

It was my greatest desire then — and still is — to 
decrease the number of unemployed. One of my first 
official acts was to appoint a Chicago Recovery Ad- 
ministration. It helped. Then came the Keep Chi- 
cago Ahead committee. It assisted more. Still more 
beneficial was the prevailing upon the World's Fair 
officials to continue another year. These and other 
agencies brought millions of people to Chicago, who, 
in turn, brought more millions of money to spend and 
helped further employment here. 

These things were done because we are a unified 
city. Selfish interests and petty desires were forgot- 
ten while our combined efforts were centered on the 
big job of Keeping Chicago Ahead. 

There are many other weighty problems in addi- 
tion to the one of making jobs. One of these has to 
do with our transportation system. 



A projx-r (rac^tion oi'dinance must be f)ass(Hi so that 
our peo|)le who (\('.\)OAui upon trolley cars and other 
foi'ms of jiublic transportation may ride to and from 
work and shopping witii comfort and reasonable 
speed. 

And they should be able to do this at the lowest 
|)ossible fare that will not interfere with just wages. 

Any traction ordinance passed should stand the full 
light of day. It must provide reasonable compensa- 
tion to the city of Chicago. It cannot be [lerpetual, 
and the new set-up must provide sufficient financial 
strength so that this problem can be solved per- 
manently. 

Traction has been taken out of politics and must 
be kept out of politics. The only "politicians" in- 
volved should be the citizens, the people of Chicago. 

Solution of this and other problems requires that 
there be continued cooperation, not only among the 
citizens generally, but between the chief executive 
and the members of the City Council. It must not 
be forgotten that Chicago is a council-governed city. 

Thus, it is important to select aldermen who are 
able and who have the welfare of Chicago at heart. 
With only a few exceptions, the present City Council 
is composed of men who have been with me in the 
Council during the last two years. I am grateful to 
the people of Chicago, the residents in the fifty wards 
of the city, for the kind of men they have elected. 
I want to thank the people for sending to the Council 
men of intelligence, men of ability, men who under- 
stand the problems of our city and who are anxious 
to serve the city. 

Chicago has never had a finer Council. I want to 
state publicly, tonight, how much I appreciate the 
fine aid and assistance — yes, the full cooperation — 
that was given me by the members of the Council 
during the past two years. It was not necessary for 
me to veto a single ordinance. That is a record for 
Chicago, one that does credit to us all. I know we 
can keep up the good work. 

In this, and the other many instances of coopera- 
tion, we have achieved something in Chicago that is 
of importance to the world as well. Everywhere there 
are people who are saying that the Democratic form 
of government is a failure. They go about shouting 
that they must try some other form of government. 
My answer is, "Look at Chicago!" 

We have proved here that the Democratic form of 
government is very much alive. We have been solv- 
ing our problems in a democratic way. The unity of 
our people, as displayed in the recent municipal elec- 
tion, revealed that democracy and the freedom of the 
ballot are still effective instruments of government. 
The voters have shown that they can appreciate 
efforts for their welfare. My faith in our form of 
government is stronger than ever before. 

The next few years may very well be the test — 
not only for Chicago — but for the whole world. We 
will meet that test. 

Chicago is a great city, and it is worth working for, 
night and day. That is the way I intend to work. 
Somebody may inquire as to why I glory in a job as 
tough as this one. They may ask why I want to take 
on the hard work of being Mayor of Chicago. 

Well, that reminds me of the story of the old man 
who one day was busy building a bridge over a creek. 
He had lived in that district for years. He knew 



April 15, 1935 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



15 



every stone in that creek and had crossed it a thou- 
sand times. He needed no bridge. 

A younger man approached as he was working. 

The young man said: "Why do you build that 
bridge? You know the way. You've never needed a 
bridge to get over. Why waste your time?" 

"Well," said the old man, "I am not building this 
bridge for myself. There are youngsters coming this 
way. They do not know all the stones. I can get 
across, but they might slip and fall. I am building 
this bridge for them. Is that wasting my time?" 

That is the spirit we must continue to have in 
Chicago. We will not live forever, but our spirit will 
never die. The spirit of Chicago is the spirit of build- 
ing for the future, for the boys and girls of today 
and those yet unborn. We will keep the faith with 
them, just as our fathers kept the faith for us. 

I dedicate myself, with God's help, toward that 
purpose — Chicago will travel on that high road."

Pfo Tern. 

Thereupon, by unanimous consent. Alderman Arvey 
in behalf of himself and Aldermen Cronson, Moran, 
Keane and Quinn presented a new gavel to Honorable 
Edward, J. Kelly, Mayor, as a token of their esteem and 
admiration. 

The iMayor expressed his thanks for the gift and 
stated that he would be obliged to treasure it more for 
its symbolic meaning than for its actual utility, for the 
reason that he has found very little use for a gavel dur- 
ing Council meetings. 



Alderman Arvey also presented a new gavel to Alder- 
man James B. Bowler, President pro tem., as a token 
of the respect and affection felt toward him by his col- 
leagues. 



Alderman Bowler expressed his thanks to the City 
Council for the gift as an expression of their friendly 
sentiments toward him, and stated that he would at all 
times do his utmost to be of assistance to the Mayor. 
He warmly commended Mayor Kelly's record and ex- 
pressed his gratification that the Mayor made it a point 
to preside himself at meetings of the Council. 



Alderman Cronson announced that he and Aldermen 
Moran, Keane and Quinn would present a desk set to 
Alderman Jacob M. Arvey within a few days, in token 
of their appreciation of his conscientious labor as chair- 
man of the "committee on committees" during their 
recent task of formulating the list of assignments of 
Aldermen to the standing committees of the Council.

JOURNAI.— CITY COUNCIL— GHIGACO 



April IT), 1935 



As the result of tlio requested opinion from the 
(Corporation (loii'nsel to the (ilTect that puhlic drivers' 
licenses art; rcnevvahie from year to year, any driver 
who pcrinils his license to lai)s(! for oik; yciar or more 
assumes tiu! status of an original applicant when he 
applies foi' a i"(nie\val and is s(!nt througli the rou- 
tine re(iuired of a new applicant. This opinion has 
been of exceptional benefit to this department in 
eliminaling drivers who have criminal records. Here- 
tofore, if a man once had a lici'iise and failed to have 
it renewed from year to year, upon application for a 
renewat at any time subsequent to the year the orig- 
inal license was issued to him, he would be given 
such renewal without any investigations being made 
as to his activities during the years he did not have 
a license. Our experience since the receipt of this 
opinion has been that the reason in a number of 
cases why applications were not made for renewals 
of licenses, was because the applicant was incarce- 
rated in some penal institution for the commission 
of a crime. Under the old system this man could 
return and apply for the renewal of his license, which 
would be granted him because of the fact that he 
previously had a license and therefore no investiga- 
tion would be made in his case. Under the present 
system this condition is not permitted to exist. 

I wish to say a word of commendation for the 
splendid and efficient cooperation given the Public 
Vehicle License Commission in the enforcement of 
the laws and ordinances governing the operation of 
public passenger vehicles by the Police Department 
as a whole and particularly the members of the Ve- 
hicle Division, without which cooperation this Com- 
mission could not possibly have functioned. The 
extent and completeness of this cooperation is best 
evidenced by the following arrest record of the mem- 
bers of the Vehicle Division established during the 
year 1934: 

Arrests made during the year 1934 1,539 

Number of charges represented by these arrests. 2,619 

The above figures include 770 arrests for so-called 
"jitneying" or operating a taxicab at a rate other 
than that prescribed by ordinance; 441 arrests for 
operating a taxicab without the proper bond; 463 
arrests for operating a taxicab without being licensed 
as such; 505 arrests for unlicensed chauffeurs; 133 
arrests for operating without City vehicle or State 
license plates; 168 arrests for operating a taxicab 
without a taximeter or a faulty one; the balance in- 
cluded arrests for fictitious license plates, speeding, 
reckless driving, passengers riding on the front seat 
of a taxicab, soliciting passengers, etc.

Respectfully submitted, 

Jas. B. Bowler, 
Public Vehicle License Commissioner.

"Whereas, Harold James Sitron, for Thomas C. 
Moulding and William P. Goodsmith, trustees, filed 
February 13, 1935, an application under the zoning 
ordinance to permit, in an apartment district, the 
establishment and operation of a milk distributing 
station on premises at 5445-47 S. Wabash avenue; 
and 

Whereas, The decision of the Commissioner of 
Buildings rendered January 31, 1935 reads: 

'Application not approved. Proposed im- 
provement does not conform with requirements 
of zoning ordinance'; 

and 

Whereas, The proposed use is to be located in 
an apartment district and would violate the strict 
letter of the zoning ordinance; and 

Whereas, A public hearing was held on this ap- 
plication by the board of appeals at its regular 
meeting held on March 18, 1935, after due public 
notice by publication in the Chicago Journal of 
Commerce on March 4, 1935; and 

■ Whereas, The use district maps show that the 
premises are located in an apartment district; and 

Whereas, The Board of Appeals is authorized 
by law in cases where there are practical difficul- 
ties or particular hardship in the way of carrying 
out the strict letter of the zoning ordinance to 
hear and determine applications for variations of 
such ordinance and to recommend variations of 
such ordinance to the City Council under rules 
provided in such ordinance; and 

Whereas, In the rules provided in the zoning 
ordinance relating to the authority of the Board 
of Appeals to recommend variations to the City 
Council there appears in Section 28, paragraph (1) 
of the zoning ordinance the following rule : 

'Granting of permission to devote premises in 
a Residence or Apartment District to a non- 
conforming A use or C use * * * in a block, or 
in a block directly across a street from a block 
in which there exists a non-conforming A use 
or C use respectively of a similar nature * * *'; 

and 

Whereas, The Board of Appeals, having fully 
heard the testimony and arguments of the parties 
and being fully advised in the premises finds that 
the applicant should be granted relief on the 
ground of particular hardship in the way of carry- 
ing out the strict letter of the zoning ordinanee on 
condition that the proposed use shall be a milk 
distributing station only and that there shall be 
no pasteurization of milk done on the premises, 
that all permits necessary for the establishment 
of the proposed use shall be obtained within three 
months after the passage of an ordinance by the 
City Council and that all other ordinances of the 
City of Chicago shall be complied with; and 

Whereas, The board further finds that the 
premises are located in an apartment district; that 
there are similar non-conforming uses in the block 
directly across the street from the block in which 
the premises are located, that there is particular 
hardship in this case and that the variation may 
be made consistently in harmony with the intent 
and purpose of the zoning regulations and would 



not be detrimental to the public welfare, safety 
or health, 

Resolved, That the Board of Appeals by virtue 
of the authority conferred upon it does hereby 
recommend that the City Council enact the follow- 
ing ordinance:

Power, on Sunday, April fourteenth, 1935, sealed the 
life of Michael F. Mclnerney, one of Chicago's rugged 
pioneers and a distinguished public official for over 
two score years; and 

Whereas, This Council has learned with deep re-

steadfast and loyal group of one hundred and one 
Democrats who, by voting courageously and main- 
taining their position for four months, succeeded 
in electing John Mayo Palmer as United States 
Senator of Illinois; 

For ten years he served with distinction the 
people of the City of Chicago and of his district 
as alderman from the old Twenty-ninth and Thir- 
tieth Wards; 

More recently he was District Forester supervis- 
ing the recreational facilities for the Forest Pre- 
serve District of Cook County;

tral Committee of Cook County for many years

was the Cook County Manager in the campaign and 
election of John Peter Altgeld for Governor of 
Illinois who was the first Democrat to be elected 
as Chief Executive in this state for a period of 
forty years; 

Whereas, He gave of himself freely for the ad- 
vancement of every public endeavor that would make 
for a greater city and a greater state;

services the City Council of the City of Chicago ex- 
press its heartfelt grief in the loss of this Chicagoan 
and that it tender to his family its deep sympathy in 
their sorrow; 

Be It Further Resolved, That this resolution be

Dear Sir: 



Re: Lakes-to-Gulf Waterway. 



The work of securing the necessary right of way 
to permit the construction of the Lakes-to-Gulf 
Waterway via the Calumet River Sag Channel route 
by the Federal Government, is progressing favorably. 

As advised heretofore, it was found possible to set 
up considerable savings in the proposed improve- 
ment of Torrence avenue between 130th and 138th 
streets by straightening the Calumet and Little Calu- 
met Rivers between these points west of Torrence 
avenue. To secure the added right of way for this 
river straightening, it will be necessary to revise and 
amend the petition covering the condemnation pro- 
ceedings heretofore filed for this project. 

In order that this work may be carried on without 
delay you are requested to authorize the continued 
employment of the right-of-way engineer who has 
been employed on this project, at a salary of $255.00 
per month, to July 1, 1935, and charge the same to 
Account 377-X-60. 

Very truly yours, 
(Signed) O. E. Hewitt, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 

Alderman Arvey thereupon presented an order au- 
thorizing the employment of an engineer as requested

DciUh ol .lane Addaiiis. 

IJdiioi-ible Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submiMcd the 
roilowiiif:: resolution : 

The whole civiliz(!(i world is bowed in grief on 
account, of the death of its most noted woman, Jane 
Addams. The people of Chicago particularly are 
appalled at the realization of the loss of its foremost 
social service devotee. 

A native of Illinois, educated in our own state, 
she chose as her life's work the motherhood of the 
unfortunate and underprivileged, the sisterhood of 
human derelicts. She was the founder of Hull 
House in this great city, the world's most famed 
settlement house. There was Jane Addams' abode 
for a half century. Her work among the poor people 
she loved and to whom she brought a great measure 
of relief from suffering and despair. Her influence 
was felt far beyond the neighborhood in which Hull 
House stands as a monument to Jane Addams, far 
beyond the limits of our beloved city and the boun- 
daries of our great State. "The world was her coun- 
try, to do good her religion," and in that sense she 
was an incomparable patriot and a most pious woman. 

Be It Therefore Resolved by the mayor and the 
city council of the city of Chicago that we stand in 
reverence to the memory of our fellow-citizen and 
benefactor. Jane Addams. and that the expression 
of our sentiments regarding her great life and of 
our deep sympathy with her family and close friends 
be spread upon the journal of the proceedings of 
this body. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee. 

Alderman Ross moved to adopt the resolution. 

The motion prevailed unanimously by a rising vote. 



Addresses to the memory of the late Jane Addams 
were thereupon made by Honorable Edward J. Kelly, 
Mayor, and by Aldermen Ross, Arvey and Bowler.

and City Treasurer are authorized and directed to 
pass for payment vouchers in payment for such work 
when properly approved by the Chairman of the

DEPARTMEINT OF LAW. 



Authorization of the Ck«*poration Counsel to Appear in 

Court in Defense" of Members of the Department 

of Police and the Fire Department in 

Certain Cases. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Corporation Counsel: 



Department of Law,] 
Chicago, May 15, 1935.} 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago. 

Gentlemen — By an amendment to the "little char- 
ter" of Chicago, which was adopted by vote of the 
people on June 5, 1933, the corporation counsel is 
authorized to defend actions against any officer and 
employe of the city who is sued personally if the 
cause of action arises out of his official duties, pro- 
vided that the city council directs the corporation 
counsel to do so. 

The corporation counsel has appeared in court for 
several officers and employes of the city at the direc- 
tion of the city council. It has been the practice of 
this department to defend policemen for false arresls 
and cases have occurred wherein firemen have been 
sued personally for their negligence in connection 



with performance of their oflicial duties. Under the 
law it is necessary for the council to direct the cor- 
poration counsel to enter his appearance in such 
cases before we may exercise that authority. We 
therefore recommend an amendment to the code giv- 
ing the corporation counsel authority generally to 
appear in court in defense of members of the police 
department and the fire department. 

We transmit herewith draft of an amendment to 
section 35 of the Revised Chicago Code of 1931 relat- 
ing to this subject, and we respectfully request the 
passage thereof. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Joseph F. Grossman, 

First Assistant Corporation Counsel. 

Approved : 

(Signed) Wm. H. Sexton, 

Corporation Counsel.

ordinance submitted with the foregoing communication 
without reference thereof to a committee.

It shall be the duty of the corporation counsel

The sum and substance of the order above referred 
to is that the city council should make an additional 
appropriation for the payment of the salaries of the 
deputy clerks, without any deduction whatsoever un- 
der Section 8 of the annual appropriation ordinance 
for the year 1932. which amounts t9 $69,586.90; that it 
should make an additional appropriation for the 
payment of the salaries of the deputy clerks, after 
deducting forty-eight days' pay only instead of sev- 
enty-eight days as provided in Section 8 of the annual 
appropriation ordinance for the year 1933. The deduc- 
tion of forty-eight days' pay from the salaries of the 
clerks for the year 1933 was authorized by resolution 
of the judges of the municipal eourt May 25, 1933 and 
the additional appropriation necessary to make up 
the deficiency of thirty days for that year is $78,452.84. 
It should also make an additional appropriation for 
the payment of the salaries of the deputy clerks, 
without any deduction whatsoever under Section 8 
of the annual appropriation ordinance for the year 
1934, which amounts to $135,975.60. 

A similar order was entered on the same day by 
the same judge directing that a writ of mandamus 
issue in the case of People ex rel. Creed et al. v. City 
of Chicago et al.. No. 589096. commanding the city 
council to appropriate the sum of $243,157.00 for the 
payment of salaries of the deputy bailiffs of the 
municipal court of Chicago for the years 1932, 1933 
and 1934 in accordance with the resolutions adopted 
by the judges of the municipal court of Chicago for 
each of said years; also directing the city comptroller 
and city treasurer to pay the deputy bailiffs of the 
municipal court upon the passage of an appropriation 
bill the salaries of the deputy bailiffs of the munici- 
pal court at the rates fixed by the judges of the muni- 
cipal court without deduction for the years 1932, 1933 
and 1934 "and to pay to the said (deputy bailiffs) their 
lawful salaries, that the same complaint may not by 
(the comptroller's and treasurer's) default he again 
repeated." 

The substance of that order is to require the city 
council to appropriate for the payment of the salaries 
of the deputy bailiffs, without any deduction what- 
soever under Section 8 of the annual appropriation 
ordinance for the year 1932. which amounts to 
$54,518.35. that it should make an additional appropri- 
ation for the payment of the salaries of the deputy 
bailiffs, after deducting forty-eight days' pay only 
instead of seventy-eight days as provided in Section 
8 of the annual appropriation ordinance for the year 

1933. The deduction of forty-eight days' pay from 
the salaries of the bailiffs for the year 1933 was au- 
thorized by resolution of the judges of the municipal 
court May 25, 1933 and the additional appropriation 
necessary to make up the deficiency of thirty days 
for that year is $66,559.84. It should also make an 
additional appropriation for the payment of the sal- 
aries of the deputy bailiffs, without any deduction 
whatsoever under Section 8 of the annual appropria-

paid to the city, and a permit issued for the installa-

For this reason the ordinance of November 28,

IMPROVEMENT OP DIVISION ST. OUT OP MOTOR FUEL TAX 

Gentlemen — The North Branch Industrial Asso- 
ciation has petitioned this Department for the im- 
provement of the easterly portion of W. Division 
street which has been designated as an Arterial High- 
way. 

The present pavement is brick laid 36 years ago, 
in bad condition and very narrow. The improvement 
of the street would provide an outlet from Clybourn 
avenue which is to be improved shortly by the Cook 
County Highway Department, and a connection from 
it to the wide pavements in N. La Salle st. and in N. 
Michigan avenue. 

This Department has prepared a resolution and 
now submits it, for the repaving of the street from 
Lake Shore Drive to Orleans street with the recom- 
mendation that it be passed. The short section from 
Orleans street to Clybourn avenue is to be paved by 
Cook County. 

The passage of the resolution at this time will per- 
mit surveys and plans to be made, so that construc- 
tion can proceed in 1936.

OIIEETINU : 

"Wher(!as, it has been represented in our S'U- 
I)reme Court that the above named relators have 
discharged the duties prescribed by law for the 
Chief Justice of the Municipal Court of Chicago and 
for the Associate Judges of the Municiijal Court of 
Chicago during the entire years of 1932, 1933 and 
1934, except where it is specifically alleged in the 
petition for mandamus that certain relators were 
elected to fill vacancies, and that their respective 
salaries are governed by Section 8 (Chapter 37, Ca- 
hilTs Illinois Revised Statutes 1929) of an Act en- 
titled, 'An Act in relation to a municipal court in 
the City of Chicago,' as amended by ;an Act in force 
and effect July 1, 192.5, and adopted by the people 
of the City of Chicago at an election held April 13, 
1926 whereby the salary of the Chief Justice is 
fixed at $15,000 per annum, and that of each Asso- 
ciate Judge is fixed at $10,000 per annum, 

"And whereas, also Section 11 of Article IX of the 
Constitution of the State of Illinois, adopted in the 
year 1870, provides in part, as follows: 

'The fees, salary or compensation of no muni- 
cipal officer who is elected or appointed for a 
definite term of office shall be increased or dimin- 
ished during such term', 

"And whereas, it has been represented to our 
Supreme Court that on the 14th day of June, A. D. 
1933, the City Council of Chicago passed an ordi- 
nance termed 'The Annual Appropriation Bill of 
the City of Chicago for the year 1933,' whereby the 
sum of $11,794.20 was appropriated for the salary 
of the Chief Justice of the Municipal Court of Chi- 
cago instead of $15,000.00 and $7,862.80 for each of 
the thirty-six Associate Judges of the Municipal 
Court of Chicago for the year 1933 was appropriated 
instead of $10,000.00 per annum, in violation of the 
Constitution and Statutes of the State of Illinois. 

"And whereas, also, it has been represented to our 
Supreme Court that in order for the City Comptrol- 
ler to have sufficient money to pay the Chief Jus- 
tice of the Municipal Court of Chicago his annual 
salary, at the rate of $15,000 per annum for the 
years of 1932, 1933 and 1934, it will be necessary for 
the City Council of the City of Chicago to appro- 
priate the sum of $180,617.92, but that the said City 
Council although repeatedly requested by the rela- 
tors to appropriate said sum of $180,617.92, the 
necessary appropriation for salaries earned by the 
Chief Justice and the Associate Judges of the Muni- 
cipal Court of Chicago for the years of 1932, 1933 
and 1934, as provided by law, have refused and do 
now refuse to make such appropriation, notwith- 
standing the fact that it has funds on hand to ap- 
propriate for said purpose. 

"We therefore being willing that due and speedy 
justice should be done to the People of the State 
of Illinois ex rel. John H. Lyle, N. J. Bonelli, Francis

Whereas, The City of Chicago heretofore issued 
in conformity with law its interest bearing bonds for

and one-half per cent per annum, payable July 1, 
1934, and semi-annually thereafter on January 1 
and July 1 of each year and being subject to re- 
dem'ption prior to maturity at par and accrued in- 
terest on any interest payment date upon notice as 
provided in the several ordinances under which said 
bonds were authorized; and 

Whereas, Of said bonds, $6,097,000 thereof have 
heretofore been called for payment and paid and cash 
is available to pay additional bonds in the amount 
of $1,403,000. thus leaving bonds in the amount of 
$7,50iO',000 outstanding and notice is in process of 
being given, that said bonds in the amount of 
$8,903,000 will be redeemed at par and accrued in- 
terest on July 1, 1935, and that interest upon said 
bonds will cease from and after that date; and 

Whereas, Under "An Act authorizing any county, 
city, village, incorporated town, school district, sani- 
tary district, forest preserve district or pai'k dis- 
trict, to issue refunding bonds and to provide for the 
levy of taxes for the payment thereof.", approved 
May 6, 1935, refunding bonds may be issued and sold 
and the proceeds used to refund bonds which by their 
terms are subject to redemption before maturity; 
and 

Whereas, For the purpose of refunding $7,500,000 
of the bonds hereinabove described, refunding bonds 
have been sold bearing interest at the rate of 3%%, 
thus effecting a considerable saving of interest and 
lessening the tax burden; and 

Whereas, Interest upon said bonds has always 
been paid at maturity thereof and money is avail- 
able to pay the interest due on July 1, 1935, and it 
is for the best interests and financial advantage of 
the City of Chicago that said bonds be refunded; now, 
therefore. 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Section 1. For the purpose of refunding the prin- 
cipal of said bonds of the City of Chicago in the 
amount of $7,500,000 and described as follows :

bile ride from the banking and business area of the 

city." 

The motion to amend prevailed. 

The question thereupon being put on the adoption of 
the resolution as amended, the motion prevailed. 

The following is said resolution as adopted : 

Whereas, The City of Chicago is the air hub of 
the nation, being a major terminal for every trans- 
continental air line of the United States and the cen- 
ter of eleven federally operated airways over which 
eight commercial transportation companies fly pas- 
sengers, mail and express; and 

Whereas, The daily air traffic into Chicago during 
1934 averaged 110 planes and 500 passengers and dur- 
ing the same year a total of 1,647,824 pounds of air 
mail, and 416,919 pounds of air express were cleared 
through Chicago's municipal airport; and 

Whereas, This volume of air traffic has developed 
since 1927, when for the first time passenger travel 
by air became possible for the general public; and 

Whereas, The advance in aeronautics of the past 
, two years in this traffic may be expected to treble 
itself within the next decade; and 

Whereas, The speed of modern commercial air- 
planes has brought Chicago within two hours flying 
time of Detroit, St. Louis, Cleveland and 55 minutes 
flying time of Milwaukee and other cities of 150 miles 
radius of Chicago; and 

Whereas, The airline operators expect that soon 
further speed increases will put New York City and 
the Eastern seaboard within a two-hour flight from 
Chicago; and 

Whereas, The present Municipal airport is situated 
twelve miles southwest of the loop business area, and 
is a 55-minute automobile ride from any of the loop 
hotels; and 



May 22, 1935 



NEW BUSINESS— BY WARDS 



H3 



Whereas, An automobile trip from .the loop to the 
Municipal airport and back to the loop takes as long 
as it does to fly to St. Louis, Cleveland, or Detroit; 
and 

Whereas, The importance of the minutes lost mo- 
toring from the airport to the business area will be 
more keenly felt as traffic and speeds of commercial 
airlines increase, and Chicago, if she would keep her 
place as the air traffic capital of the world, must reap 
full advantage from the unparalleled opportunity of- 
fered by her waterfront only a few hundred yards 
from the city; therefore. 

Be It Resolved, That the City Council hereby ap- 
prove the already drawn detailed plans for an island 
flying landing field within only a 10-minute auto- 
mobile ride from the banking and business area of 
the city; 

Be It Further Resolved, That the City Council go on 
record as strongly favoring the construction, as soon 
as practical, of a downtown landing field; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That the City Council 
hereby approve His Honor the Mayor's request for an 
allotment from the Federal Government of the funds 
to complete this necessary and needed project.

Death of Marshal Josef Pilsudski. 

Aldermen Konkowski, Rostenkowski, Orlikoski. Kadow 
and Lagodny presented the following resolution: 

Our sister republic of Poland assumed its station 
among the nations of the world but a few years ago. 
Almost from the beginnnig of its independent status 
the Polish government has been a great influence in 
world politics and has wielded its power to maintain 
the democratic principles that government derives its 
just powers from the consent of the governed and that 
every person within its jurisdiction is entitled to 
equal protection under its laws. 

The colorful thread of life of Josef Pilsudski is 
woven into the fabric of the new republic of Poland. 
His place in the hearts of his countrymen and in the 
halls of world-famous men is assured, but his coun- 
try and the civilized world have lost a hero and 
champion of liberty and justice in the death of this 
great soldier and statesman. 

The mayor and the city council of the City of Chi- 
cago join with all the world in paying tribute to the 
indomitable will, the force, the courage and the patri- 
otism of Josef Pilsudski. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on said 
resolution without reference thereof to a committee.

Whereas, the decision of the Commissioner of •

Application not approved. Proposed improve- 
ment does not conform with requirements of

and 

Whereas, The proposed use is to be located in an

ter of the zoning ordinance; and 

Whereas, A public hearing was held on this ap- 
plication by the Board of Appeals at its regular 
meeting held on April 1, 1935, after due public notice 
by publication in the Chicago Journal of Commerce 
on March 18, 1935; and 

Whereas, The use district maps show that the 
premises are located in an apartment district; and 

Whereas, The Board of Appeals is authorized by

or particular hardship in the way of carrying out 
the strict letter of the zoning ordinance to hear and

nance and to recommend variations of such ordi- 
nance to the City Council under rules provided in

cil there appears in Section 28, Paragraph (1) of 
the zoning ordinance the following rule: 

'Granting of permission to devote premises in 
an . . . Apartment district to a non-conforming 
. . . C use ... in a block or in a block directly 
across a street from a block in which there exists 
a non-conforming . . . C use of a similar nature, 
provided that such permission shall not be so 
exercised as to permit either such use of prem- 
ises in blocks where no such use existed at the 
time of the passage of this ordinance on either 
side of the street, and further provided that a 
non-conforming use herein permitted shall not 
exceed in area of premises or cubical contents of 
structures the similar non-conforming use then 
existing. In granting such permission the build- 
ing line regulation provided by this ordinance for 
the block shall be maintained, and the use per- 
mitted shall be deemed to be non-conforming in 
the same sense as though it were erected prior to 
the time of the passage of this ordinance'; 

and 

Whereas, There is a similar non-conforming use 
in the block directly across the street (W. Ohio 
street) from the blO'Ck in which the premises are 
located, the area of the premises upon which the 
existing non-conforming use is located being 3510 
square feet; and 

Whereas, The board of appeals, having fully 
heard the testimony and arguments of the parties 
and being fully advised in the premises, finds that 
the applicant should be granted relief on the 
ground of particular hardship in the way of carry- 
ing out the strict letter of the zoning ordinance on 
condition that the area of the premises and the 
cubical contents of the proposed structures are not 
to exceed the area of the premises and cubical con- 
tents of the structures of the non-conforming use 
existing in the block across the street (W. Ohio 
street) from the block in which the premises are 
located; that all permits necessary for the erection 
of the proposed use shall be obtained within three 
months and all work shall be completed within six 
months after the passage of an ordinance by the 
city council; that the building line regulations pro- 
vided by the zoning ordinance for the block shall 
be maintained; that all other ordinances of the City 
of Chicago shall be complied with, and that plans in 
triplicate shall be approved by the Board of Ap- 
peals before a building permit is issued herein; and 

Whereas, The board further finds that the prem- 
ises are located in an apartment district and that 
there is a similar non-conforming use in the block 
directly across the street from the block in which 
the premises are located and that there is particu- 
lar hardship in this case and that the variation may 
be made consistently in harmony with the intent 
and purpose of the zoning regulations and would 
not be detrimental to the public welfare, safety or 
health, 

Resolved, That the Board of Appeals by virtue 
of the authority conferred upon it does hereby rec- 
ommend to the City Council to enact the following 
ordinance:

The following is the auditor's report and certificate 
submitted with the foregoing report: 

Chicago, May 29, 1935. 

Hon. J. M. Arvey, Chairman, Finance Committee, City 
Council, Chicago, Illinois. 

Dear Snt — Pursuant to your instructions we have 
examined the general books and related records of the 
Comptroller of the City of Chicago for the year ended 
December 31. 193 'i. 

Our examination was limited to a comparison of 
the Comptroller's records with the departmental in- 
come and disbursements as reported to him by the 
various departments and bureaus of the City gov- 
ernment, excepting the Board of Education, and were 
found in agreement therewith. The records of the 
individual departments upon which their reports 
were based were not examined. 

Taxes levied for the year 1928 and all years subse- 
quent thereto are set forth at amounts as extended 
by the County Clerk, less reserves for losses incurred 
in the course of collection. None of these levies have 
as yet been officially declared delinquent. 

In our opinion, sub.ject to the above explanation, 
the accompanying Balance Sheets as of December 31, 
1934, together with their related operating state- 
ments, correctly reflect the financial transactions re- 
ported to the Comptroller of the City of Chicago for 
the year ended December 31, 193 4 and recorded on 
his books. 

Respectfully submitted.

Alderman Massen presented the following resolution, 
which was ordered published and referred to the Com- 
mittee on Local Transportation: 

Whereas, Diversity of ownership of the local 
transportation systems operated in the City of Chi- 
cago produces duplications in transportation fa- 
cilities and in executive and operating services and 
compels a competition for patronage which, in the 
aggregate, imposes unnecessary burdens on the public 
that these local transportation systems serve; and 

Whereas, Diversified ownership of the said local 
transportation systems precludes the development of 
a comprehensive and coordinated local transportation 
system in Chicago and the Chicago region and the 
public interest requires that such a comprehensive 
and coordinated local transportation system be de- 
veloped; and 



Whereas, Proceedings under Section 77b of the 
Bankrn|)(cy Act have been filed against the Chicago 
Rapid Transit Comijany, MetroiJOlitan West Side Ele-

Railways Comjiany and Chicago (^ity & Connecting 
Railways Collateral Ti'ust in the United States Dis- 
trict Court for the Northern District of Illinois, East- 
ern Division, and the said proceedings are still pend-

Whereas, It is Kf)ecifically provided in and by Sec- 
tion 77b of the Bankrui)tcy Act that any plan of re- 
organization submitted pursuant thereto 

"may include the transfer of all or any part of the 
property of the debtor to another corporation or to 
other corporations or the consolidation of the prop- 
erties of the debtor with those of another corpora- 
tion or the merger or consolidation of the debtor 
into or with another corporation or corporations," 

and the City of Chicago occupies the position of a 
creditor under executory contract or otherwise with 
respect to some one or more of the corporations 
aforesaid; and 

Whereas, The interest in the local transportation 
situation involved which the City of Chicago repre- 
sents is one of paramount importance; 

Therefore be it, and it is hereby, by the City Coun- 
cil of the City of Chicago Resolved, 

That a plan of reorganization which will produce

local transportation system for Chicago and the Chi- 
cago region be prepared by and under the direction 
of the Committee on Local Transportation for sub- 
mission in the proceedings aforesaid; and 

That the City of Chicago intervene in the said pro-

ernment, which now receives a percentage of the re- 
ceipts from the operation of pari-mutual machines 
at race tracks in the State; and 

Whereas, It is apparent there is widespread pub- 
lic demand for legalized handbooks and their licens- 
ing would bring substantial revenue to the City
